Indie-Pendence Day: Northern Publishing Panel

About this event

In spite of the economic decline during lockdown, book sales across the world have steadily risen since last April, but with many small presses being cut at the knees, where are we getting our books from and how will the world of independent publishing, which is so vital to the diversity and richness of the industry, fare as we begin to return to life post-pandemic? Joining WoWFest is a panel of industry experts from independent Northern-based publishers Lendall Press, Bluemoose Books, And Other Stories and Peepal Tree Press.
